“Wii U does not have DVD or Blu-ray playback capabilities, said Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.
“The reason for that is that we feel that enough people already have devices that are capable of playing DVDs and Blu-ray, such that it didn’t warrant the cost involved to build that functionality into the Wii U console because of the patents related to those technologies.”
Are you disappointed that the Wii U won’t play your DVDs and Blu-rays?
